EOT: We're Employee Owned!

EOT: We're Employee Owned!

We’re so excited to announce that Skillsearch is now an employee owned company!

We’ve been working hard over the past few months to put some exciting changes in place so we’re extremely proud to be able to say that Skillsearch’s majority shareholder is now its employees 🎉🎉🎉 

This will allow us to put our team at the forefront of everything we do, focusing on what is best for them as a priority and allowing them to reap the rewards, with the goal of making Skillsearch an even more awesome place to work.

We see this as a unique opportunity as one of the few recruitment agencies we’ve come across to make the transition to the EOT scheme and we’re thrilled that it’s had a hugely positive response from the team since the plans were revealed! With the EOT kicking, in our amazing staff are now front and centre, giving everyone a say in the future of the business. Although we’ve always valued input from staff, we’re now taking employee voice to the next level, making this change a win-win for everyone!

This means that as a direct result of every team member’s hard work, they will reap the benefits in the form of profit sharing, as well as having the chance to work towards shared goals as one unit. This will ultimately allow each individual to have a say in the future of the business and enjoy the rewards when they come in, as well as taking our supportive, collaborative team culture to the next level.


Like the sound of working for an awesome company where you truly have a voice and enjoy profit sharing, alongside a friendly and supportive team? Then you're in luck - we're hiring! If you're looking for a role in games or tech recruitment, get in touch with us today!

Marketing Manager Freya Simmons

Freya is our word wizard and seems to have beautiful words stored in her hands just ready to fall out onto a page. Lucky for us she has chosen to share her skill with us to look after our marketing and make everything you see as enjoyable as possible. Her favourite things to do around Brighton are visits to Devils Dyke and Ditchling Beacon to enjoy the wonderful scenery so with this and her love of words we imagine that in another life she would’ve been the heroine in a Jane Austen novel or Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
